Nice find Kirk. Never seen one before. Plus it fired up, even better. There were also Duracamp lanterns that are Japanese. A pretty good copy of a 200A, but in brown and yellow. A guy at our Flea Market has had one for 2 years. Sits in his booth with a 60.00 price tag. Makes me wonder about the guy. He packs and carrys that thing every month with out selling it ,but never lowers the price. Come spring I will probably see it again. :lol:

I have seen people at the flea that I go to drag a lantern around for a YEAR! I walk up holding three lanterns I got for $8 and they say, nope $40 for a 220j.

Those are rare you know. :lol:

Kirk, There is a guy on Craigslist in Chicago with a basic 425 2 burner stove. Very used, at best a 10-15$ stove. He has listed it everyday for probably 6 months asking $140.00.

Yes that is right $140.00. It ticks me off cause I am always sifting through his ad. All this dope has to do is look at the other ads around him to know he is WAY to high.

Oh well maybe we are the suckers for not selling for the outside limit. I dont do this for money so maybe I just dont get it. Its all good I hope he get the $140.

Wow that vent is sure a high one. Not to go off topic but we also have a guy that has common everyday lantern from the 70's that he keeps listing on craigslist for $40. That lantern has been on there for a couple of years. Just for sheets & giggles I called him last year asking questions about it. He don't know anything about it except one of the white bags broke. :lol:

Dawn, maybe the stove guy is the BIL of your lantern guy. As Forrest said, "Stupid is as Stupid does"......after awhile you should start to figure out the price your asking is to high.

Bob, didn't you feel bad only paying $5.23 ? :lol: I have only seen one lantern in a Goodwill/Salvation Army/Saver's store, and I bought it. But that was 3 years ago. Nothing since.

HAH! My 3 burner Coleman stove would have been free if I didnt insist on making a $20 donation to Habitat (It was in their scrap trailer) Brought it home and it lit right up with the fuel that was in it..
